The Line - Porto. Designed by Antoine Daniel.
It was french new brand The Line that came up with the idea of transforming the urban landscape into a strip of metal that juggles with soli and hollow forms. Designer Antoine Daniel cut the Marseille Skyline out of strips of steel.
He saw it as a way of gathering his childhood memories together on a wire. Nailed up on the wall between two paintings, this tightrope landscape resonates only with initiates. Like a talisman, it whispers the sound of the mistral, channeling it beween the peaks of Notre-Dame-De-La-Garde and the Vauban cutting, while murmuring that the Mediterranean is never far away. Little by little, The Line is expanding geographically: Lyon and Paris already have their silhouettes, wich you can, of course, give as gifts to friends in France, Navarra or elsewhere. Like postcards in the form of lifelines. "
